Will manual shift boot fit auto opening?

I'm thinking of doing the SMG auto shifter update and want to use a MT shift boot to delete the stock AT insert & boot with the PRND lights. I beleive the center console is the same but don't know if there is a separate insert for the MT shift boot that I would need in addition to the boot itself.

Anyone know if this will work?

Yes it will work. I had a standard MT boot for awhile. I now just have a custom set up with the MT boot mounted to the AT plate.

Works fine. Sometimes is a little tight when pulled back to D, but since they're leather or alcantara, it should stretch

Do you guys have a part # for the manual shift boot? I also want to do the SMG shifter retrofit with a MT shift boot to delete the auto baseplate.

I am going to use motivemod.com for the SMG shifter, but wondering if you guys know what part # for the manual boot?

Thanks,
E
